Practice Update: Aug 26, 2008

A few thoughts on Will Johnson:
  • He is pretty intense and competitive in practice
  • I saw a couple of great strikes from him
  • He seems to have very good foot skills and is comfortable with the ball on his feet
  • I can really see him playing out wide and doing well
  • He is a little bit slight of build, but I understand he is quite strong on the ball
  • Will not be a great aerial threat.

A couple of other notes:

  • Practice was light on conditioning/fitness and heavy on working on certain aspects of the game
  • Dema/Beltran/Ian all competed in the initial segment of short passing in a team format
  • Dema spent most of rest of practice icing down his shin
  • Ian spent most of the rest of practice jogging
  • Tony played in one more segment before coming out of the regular practice session
